Established in 1981, the Santa Barbara Triathlon is one of the longest running triathlons in the world. And its no wonder: Stunning scenery, flawless operations and an ocean-front transition area and finish line ensure a sell-out event every year. Stick around after the event for childrens beach activities, a fabulous sports expo and convenient on-site dining.
Participants can select from either our famous long course which includes an Aquabike division or one of our sprint courses. Sprint course options include a womens-only event, parent/child team event (compete side-by-side with your child) as well as the traditional co-ed format.
The Santa Barbara Triathlon is proud of the fact that since 2002 we have raised over $450,000 for local charities. Each year a new charity is selected by our community. This year we will support the Sholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara.
